Learn how integrating security into DevOps to deliver "DevSecOps" requires changing mindsets, processes and technology.

Its time to admit that sometimes it’s okay to incur technical debt, particularly when it comes to getting it done. So many times, I’ve run into to places that have constipated operations environments, or automation processes because something is hard to do automatically.

If you can’t automated it, don’t block all other tasks because of one issue. It better to have a partially automated solution, than none at all. Just make sure you can document it, and come back later when you have more time. Don’t let your tools be your excuse for not doing it, it only makes you look bad.

WDYT?
